 can perl fill in web form without submitting it?

Hi there,

How can perl be used to automatically fill in a web form??

Say there is a web site with form for users to input, can a perl script
be used to fill in that form (without submitting it?) Thanks!

Depends what you want to do with it.

Why do you want to fill it out without submitting it?

Fetch the form so you have a local copy, then generate the HTML
form while inserting your values. Now its ready to be submitted
manually.
